International Medical Graduate Taskforce (IMG) to visit Capitol Hill on April 8, 2011

The IMG Taskforce will hold its annual Physician Lobby Day in Washington DC on April 8, 2010. IMG Taskforce Members from across the country will convene on Capitol Hill to educate Congressional representatives and their staff about the immigration system as it relates to IMGs and other medical providers. Their goal is to raise awareness of some of immigration challenges in training, working, and living in the United States so that Members of Congress will be more effective and informed advocates for their cause.
